MacLennan (2022) reminds us of the many global risk factors that have increased over the last few years: societal risks, social cohesion, livelihood crises, the deterioration of mental health, etc. Societal and environmental risks are a major concern, despite the fact that on 25 September 2015, the United Nations issued a sustainable development resolution adopting the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The European Union works continuously in international cooperation for sustainability, peace, the rule of law, human rights and the rules-based international order (European Commission, Directorate..., 2019). EU countries are steadily implementing the 2030 Agenda and invest in sustainable development. However, different regions and cities face different sustainability challenges. Zeng, Yu, Yang et al. (2022) for instance, states that the cities in emerging economies experience rapid urbanization, which is characterized by poor planning, weak institutional systems and insufficient essential urban public services. The innability to provide basic services therefore leads to socio-economic vulnerability of the city.
